How Do You Spell [m]?

1. Underline the letters that spell [m] in the following words:

& \text{cru\underline{m}ble} && \text{\underline{m}otionless} && \text{co\underline{m}pared} && \text{u\underline{m}brella} \\& \text{rese\underline{m}ble} && \text{exclai\underline{m}} && \text{costu\underline{m}e} && \text{\underline{m}ortal} \\& \text{ele\underline{m}ent} && \text{\underline{m}innow} && \text{\underline{m}eddle} && \text{econo\underline{m}ics} \\& \text{handso\underline{m}e} && \text{poe\underline{m}} && \text{dia\underline{m}onds} && \text{che\underline{m}ical} \\& \text{e\underline{m}inent} && \text{judge\underline{m}ent} && \text{s\underline{m}oothest} && \text{enor\underline{m}ous}

2. How is [m] spelled in all of these words? ‘m’. More than nine times out often [m] is spelled this way.

3. Now sort the twenty words into these three groups. One word will be in two groups:

meddle poem element umbrella

4. Fill in the blank: Usually [m] is spelled \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;}.
